I recently made this cake for a friend's birthday, and it is an old recipe from the 1950's. Sprinkle with coconut and chopped maraschino cherries if you wish.

This cake is very delicious. It came out just right. I iced it with the Wedding Cake Icing on this site and it was a hit. All the kids loved it. Will be making again. Thanks for the recipe.

I've baked this cake twice in the past 2 months. Once for my son's 2nd birthday and one for Valentine's day. First time I baked it, I used a 9x13 pan it was a little on the dry side, and it had air pocket holes throughout the cake...still delicious though. Second time I made it I added a bit more milk, used a donut cake pan and tapped the pan on the counter a few times before I put it in the oven... needless to say I almost ate the whole darn cake myself!! Delicious, moist and no air pocket holes. I used a butter icing on the cake and it was to die for!!!

Favor was good, but it did come out a little dry. Next time I will try substituting drained applesauce for 1/2 the shortening. I have found this helps keep baked goods moist.
